    I'm looking to use a slightly thicker string gauge for my 7 . it came setup from the factory with a Tusq Xl nut with Ernie ball slinkys which I believe are 10-56 . what do you guys think the maximum string gauge that'll fit on the nut without any alterations ?
    I'm OK with readjusting the truss rod and bridge height , intonation but I don't really want to alter the nut .

    Would 11-60 fit maybe ?

    Thanks
